Rocklin man reports home invasion robbery of marijuana

From Art Campos:

A Rocklin man told police that three men broke into his home, held a sawed-off shotgun on him as they beat and tied him and then stole $500 and marijuana he uses for medical purposes.

The home invasion occurred at about noon Monday on Aguilar Road, police reported.

Officers found the front door forced open and located the victim, who declined medical attention for his injuries, Sgt. Tom Dwyer wrote in a news release.

The victim told police he didn't know his attackers and that the robbers ransacked the home for about 15 minutes before fleeing.

Two of the suspects were described as being in their 20s, one of them wearing short, curly brown hair. The other was described as an African American in his 20s. He wore braided hair and carried the sawed-off shotgun.

Lt. Lon Milka said the victim had a valid Proposition 215 card.

Proposition 215 was approved in 1996 by California voters, and it allows patients with a valid doctor's recommendation to possess and cultivate marijuana for personal medical use.
